Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Work wise it is ok, just like any bay area tech company.
Some work can be challenging with some amount of flexibility typical of any software company around.

Cons

As the title mentions, low salary and bonus than the big software companies. But the stock is not doing well, so no advantages of being in a small company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Riverbed Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Interesting work
    * Stable and low risk job

    Cons

    * You can remain stuck at essentially an entry level position even after working for more than 5 years and being a very good contributor (as accepted by management)
    * Pay hikes are very poor
    * Very high levels of micro-management and very poor organization
    * There is no leader to inspire engineers
    * Every release cycle ends with supplanting engineers from multiple teams to get past the finish line. So engineers never get to stay focussed on a solution.

    Advice to Management

    * Address the cons listed above
    * Communicate frequently
    * Delegate and stop the micro-management
